Winding a skein and knitting until I need another allows me to savor the project and amplifies the process of creating a sweater. But my preference for winding yarn as I knit challenged the progress on Ariann last week. I finished the first skein Tuesday. The rest of the week I couldn’t find the time or energy to wind up more yarn so late in the evening. All I wanted to do was to sink into the couch and knit. (A new sock with the ribbing complete connected to approximately 400 yards of yarn was what I reached for each night.)

To make up for last week, I wound up three skeins of Beaverslide this morning. A weekend of good knitting ahead…

  1. Such teaser shots you proffer… you really do have me lusting after this cottontail beaverslide yarn. I now dream of making Linden from RYC Classic Alpaca with it. It may be only a matter of time before the wallet is a little lighter.

  2. I do the same thing…if the yarn isn’t already wound when I’m ready for it, then it just sits and sits. I’ll really want to cast on a pair of socks, but if the yarn isn’t already wound for use, I’ll just choose a different yarn that is ready!

  3. that yarn is so pretty! looks like you have plenty to keep you knitting for a while!

    What a lovely thought! I guess I feel this way about my painting and drawing, laying out my paints, the sort of little rituals before I work. I hadn’t really though that way about sewing or knitting yet, perhaps because as a beginner in those crafts, I’m very much ‘feeling my way’.
    Its a pleasure to share your enjoyment of the colour and yarn and the stitches… it makes me want to get my needles out. I’m going to try a plain pair of ribbed socks – I just hope I get the slip stitch part right. And it doesn’t fall off the funny short needles.
